During the video, the London-based producer talks about the inspiration behind the remix and how the pair planned to reinvent the classic. Harry fires up Cubase and shows exactly how he processed Vivienne Chi’s vocals to make them sound so warm and bright. He details his favourite plugins, including Arturia’s Mini V and Serum which helped create the track’s pulsing arpeggios and synth lines, along with how he automates his MIDI melodies. For the bassline, he layered two synths which helped create the 80s synthwave vibe the pair were going for when producing the song.
